Yes, Friends and Relatives

a Compilation/Boxed-Set release

Release Year: 1998

Date Label Catalog # Comments
1998 Purple Pyramid CD: CLP 0337-2
You might think this is another Yes album, but it is not. This is a VA (various artists) collection where the various artists are members or former members of Yes, or relatives of the same. Closer incpection of the album title shows a comma between Yes and Friends and Relatives. It is easy to miss (no doubt a fact intented by the marketing).
The band Esquire is led by Chris Squire's ex-wife, Nikki and they contribute 'Zone of O' and 'Tron Thomi' from their second album Coming Home which did not have any involvement by members of Yes.
- This collection was assembled by Brian Adams, who had been Rick Wakeman's manager during much of the eighties.
- Anderson's new version of 'Owner of a Lonely Heart', which is the only piece not available on another release
